    Sad, very sad for Chatham County. If you don't like it, don't look at it or go another way. Just like I use a remote to not watch cnn or msnbc. So the march to change the landscape continues

    Correct me if I’m wrong, it was a statue to deceased CSA veterans in the center circle of Pittsboro. Out of town era and antics type came in raising hell, and won.
    I guess if you erase history, it can’t happen again.
    I’d bet they’d cheer if it was replaced with Stalin, Mao, Lenin or Pol Pot.

    I'd likely go there and relocate it... If I lived there, which I don't.

    IANAL but the best I understand, the Daughters of the Confederacy says "We gave it to Chatham County, it belongs to you, therefore according to state law (the link you provided), it can't be removed".

    And the county's argument is "Oh no, we just let you put it there, but it's still yours. Not ours, not protected".

    I would hook that statue up to the hot side of 220V and connect the ground wires to a 20x20 metal plate and fencing around it. Maybe add one of those 'misters' they have in amusement parks for extra flair.

    I was born and raised in Pittsboro. When I was maybe 5 years old my father told me to keep an eye on the statue, because when it got cold, he put his hands in his pockets. I always thought about that when I drove past it.
    I only go home now for holidays and the occasional visit now. I do not recognize the damn place. Please start referring to it by it's new name, South Chapel Hill

    Here was the message I sent to the Chatham Chatlist this morning. I will be interested in seeing if it gets published. I did borrow some of the text from one of the guys at NCrenegade.com with his permission....

    I like it!
    The problem? Even the judge that broke the law won't understand it.
    .gov's children internment camps are working well for the socialists.

    I know it is probably a pipe dream but, isn't there still a suite pending regarding the statue. IF the court rules that the statue belonged to the county and it is protected by earlier legislature then the county will have to put it back up. Can you just imagine what that place will look like while that is being done. Epic.

    My post from the other thread:

    Commies don’t stop until someone fights back. There were only 2 results possible. Statue comes down, or an opposing force puts commies in the hospital or ground. History is pretty consistent in this matter.

    Meanwhile in every town in New Hampshire a Union statue has never been protested or vandalized.

    You won't catch me north of the Virginia border unless someone has a gun to my head. But there are still patriots in that part of the world that know what's up. Live Free or Die indeed.

    New Hampshire peeps are great but they have been invaded as well. If the goal is to erase all history of slavery and oppression then why haven’t they taken them all down? Are they not symbols of division of the country?

    My Uncle lived in Maine most of his life. Moved to NH so he could take a big $ job outside of Boston. Moved into Mass. a few years back. I asked him why he would do that. He said there really isn’t a difference anymore so he might as well save a bunch of time on the commute.

    They're working on it. Buttigeig has suggested no more Jefferson.
